Breadman TR555 (TR555LC)
I am in need of either a parts list or a schematic of an old Breadman TR555 bread machine. I had small washer/seal/grommet part disintegrate and need to find a replacement. The part goes around the drive shaft and appeared to sit underneath a hard rubber part on the inside base of the bread pan. The problem is that it is gone and I have nothing to compare it to.
A call to the manufacturer wasn’t particularly helpful. It also occurs to me that the same part is in a lot of bread machines from this manufacturer, like a TR555LC, which is still in production.
I would like to believe that this isn’t a bread machine-specific part but rather a “hardware store” part and should be easy to find if I knew what I was looking for (e.g., what material is it made out of?).
I have another bread machine (Betty Crocker, dead for another reason) and it appears to have a hard nylon(?) seal around the base of the shaft.
The Breadman still holds water so it isn’t leaking. Maybe I should just keep on using it?
Thank you for any help.
